The “software-defined vehicle” of the future necessitates new means of software development and vehicle service integration. Software thus becomes an important added-value factor and distinguishing feature – one that can be developed and sold independently of the hardware. Yet the enormous opportunities that exist in terms of connectivity, automation, and personalization of the vehicle are countered by challenges such as the ever-dwindling development resources of automotive manufacturers and the costs associated with creating new development environments and IT infrastructures. Service providers who wish to develop and offer their own services are faced with problems such as high initial investment costs, lacking access to markets and users, or cost- and time-consuming customer management.
With PANTARIS, ETAS provides vehicle developers and service providers with a suitable infrastructure for creating, distributing, and marketing new software and services.
The ability to focus on core activities raises efficiency in the development process, while shared expenditure for the IT infrastructure, sales, and user service reduces costs and breaks down the entry barriers for new market participants. The worldwide availability of PANTARIS facilitates the global distribution of new software as well as the marketing of services. The marketplace is manufacturer-independent and is available to all providers and users of vehicle-related services.

Service provider portal
The service provider portal simplifies the development, testing, release, and operation of automotive services. Among other things, the cloud-based platform features a preconfigured runtime development environment. Within this environment, the user is free to select the programming language and connectivity box employed thanks to the system architecture with docker containers. The service provider portal also includes a framework with defined rights, role, and user management, tools for testing the services and managing different software versions, as well as a marketplace on which services can made available, promoted, and distributed to customers.
Benefits of the service provider portal
Low entry barriers and minimal initial investments
Innovative IT architectures avoid lock-in effects and ensure compatibility
Immediately deployable runtime environments eliminate the need for own, resource-intensive infrastructures
The shared development environment ensures that the service developers can work together in real and virtual teams across different domains and function levels
Direct access to additional users and markets simplifies promotion activities and opens up potential synergies
Statistics functions ensure easier monitoring of costs and key performance indicators (KPIs)
